The Youth Snow Science Workshop (YSSW) initiative will support Elk Valley’s teachers and students to attend a full-day workshop aimed at youth snow science education during the conference’s field trip day. The goals for YSSW are to:
connect local youth with regional and international experts;
have students participate in stations that explore avalanche safety, research trends, and skill development; and
expose students to the wide array of possibilities for applying school subjects and personal interests to careers and issues in the snow-safety industry.
